A humorous take on Thatcher's image and her infamous handbag, produced during her opposition period, the year before she was elected Prime Minister. Thatcher supposedly tells the buyer: "I have gathered together in this stylish handbag a most useful collection of practical tips so that even the most deprived of you who have the will and the enterprise can cultivate those exclusive qualities which have made me - and can make YOU - a model Tory lady".
